California DJ Seven Lions, born Jeff Montalvo, has had a busy year! At the beginning of the year, he established his own record label, Ophelia, and promptly released the single “Calling You Home.” He released a bunch more music throughout the year, and he’s coming to play at Echostage on Saturday, Nov. 17.

Hello everyone, and welcome to a special edition as we review Porter Robinson and friends, as they performed under their new sound Virtual Self, at Echostage recently. Porter Robinson alone is already an extremely talented act to watch so we could only imagine what his new style and performance would show us on this crisp summer night!

Porter Robinson has developed a new concept, Virtual Self. With this new identity, Porter revels in his love of early ’00s visuals to “combine three tropes from the period that didn’t overlap much at the time: digital abstract, arcane magic design, and digital grunge, all into a single early-aughts flavor.”
With a show at Echostage on Monday, Sept. 3, Porter will bring Virtual Self to DC.

What’s up everyone! Welcome back for another musical journey through my eyes. Recently, I had the pleasure of reviewing Tritonal on their tour at Soundcheck for the 10th year of their Enhanced Music Label. Chad Cisneros and Dave Reed chose intimate venues to do their 10-year tour, bringing it back to the Austin based duo’s roots.

Here we go as we shuffle along with the Grammy nominated house DJ Chris Lake! This time we ventured out to one of our favorite frequents in U-Street Music Hall on Friday, Oct. 20! As one of the minds behind several of dance music’s biggest productions, it was no surprise that the crowd was sold out in anticipation of the Englishman.
